Chapter Summary

According to the records of the Museo delle Antichità Egizie di Torino, the remarkably well-preserved Stela of Djehutynefer, Inv. Cat. No. 1639, was once a part of Bernardino Drovetti's collection. It is round topped, made of fine limestone, and measures 56.5 cm in height, 37.5 cm in breadth, and 7.5 cm in thickness. The upper portion of the stela, which has a pale brown background, is occupied by a funerary scene and texts. On the right, facing left, is a seated Osiris, whose face, neck, hands, and collar are colored green. In front of Osiris, facing right, stands Djehutynefer, brown colored, raising his hands before his face in a gesture of adoration. He is the Scribe of Counting the Cattle of Amun, Djehutynefer, called Seshu. The main text occupies 13 lines, the uppermost four of which are not colored, whereas the lower nine are colored blue.
